The 2000s in music (yet another video retrospective)

Well, we've had the 80s music thread, the 90s music thread, and seeing as the current decade has only a few months left to run, now would be a good time to review the years 2000-2009 in popular music.

OK, the music of the last 10 years has been nothing but rubbish, I hear you say. [What he said - everyone] I thought that too when I thought about the music from the previous decade themed threads - and how wrong I was proven, with the (mostly good) memories flooding back from classic hits and long-forgotten gems. Perhaps by trawling through the good, the bad and the ugly of the 2000s others may feel the same way too? [No - everyone else]

Some of the songs I liked from the last 10 years anyway (your mileage may vary):

"Burn Baby Burn" - Ash

"New Born" - Muse

"My Doorbell" - The White Stripes

"I Believe In A Thing Called Love" - The Darkness

"Don't Mug Yourself" - The Streets

"When The Sun Goes Down" - Arctic Monkeys

"Feel Good Inc." - Gorillaz

"Crazy" - Gnarls Barkley

"The Importance of Being Idle" - Oasis

"Ooh Wee" - Mark Ronson feat. Ghostface, Trife & Nate Dogg

"Ooh La La" - Goldfrapp

"Oh My God" - Kaiser Chiefs
(no, the decade was not known for its imaginative song titles... )

"Paper Planes" - MIA

"Chelsea Dagger" - The Fratellis

One interesting thing was that at one point, the same record was released by three different bands, under different titles:

"Take Me Out" - Franz Ferdinand

"Paralyzer" - Finger Eleven

"Shut Up And Let Me Go" - The Ting Tings

[[facepalm] - everyone]
